The Marchesi family has been farming Müller-Thurgau for four decades, and their plantings rank among the largest in the U.S. It’s a cool-climate variety that’s not often done in a bone-dry style, and the Demeter-certified Biodynamic effort helps elevate the German variety to another realm. Stephen Webber, who grew up in a home in England where Germanic whites were appreciated, captures and promotes tantalizing aromas of mango, passionfruit and tangerine, with secondary notes of marshmallow cream, mustard seed and grape Pixy Stix. Racy flavors of Meyer lemon and Key lime pick up additional structure from peach pit and slate, combining for a mouthwatering finish. Enjoy with a board of light meat and cheeses, a salad featuring feta or a chicken sandwich.
